|Nexus Crux FPSO, Timor Sea, Australia |
In April 2006, Mustang Engineering was awarded the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the Crux FPSO by Nexus Energy. Mustang led an integrated team of specialist companies (JP Kenny, Ionik Consulting & AMOG), which have a proven track record in the oil and gas industry to successfully deliver this comprehensive project study.
Mustang was chosen to design the topsides of a floating LNG/LPG liquefaction new-build vessel for Teekay Corporation. The liquefaction technology selected for this project is Mustang’s LNG Smart® Nitrogen Dual Expander (NDX-1) liquefaction process. NDX-1 is a process that is simple, compact, energy-efficient, and flexible over a wide range of feed compositions. NDX-1 offers a thermal efficiency of 91-93%. The use of nitrogen as the refrigeration fluid makes this process inherently safer and facilitates the design of a modular layout.
Samsung Heavy Industries of Korea will design and construct the hull for the floating LNG vessel. Initial design concepts call for the unit to have a combined storage capacity for LNG and LPG in excess of 200,000 m3. The design will also incorporate IHI’s self-supporting, prismatic-shaped, SPB tanks.
ABS awarded concept approval to Teekay for the basic design concept of a floating LNG vessel.
